In brief: Varies

Average 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Depends on actual procedures performed which could include meniscal repairs and cartilage work. Possibly as long as 3 hours.

Ask your surgeon.
There are multiple factors that contribute to the surgical time. Everything from the speed of your surgeon, to the facility you are having surgery in. Your surgeon will be able to give you an idea.
